Here are your headliners for this, the shortest month of the year. But don't be fooled these competitors are anything but short on skills. First up, abra-cadabra:

Ent for the second entry cause the OSL is quite sharp. My only qualm is that it is hard to gage if other areas have seen any sort of subtle painting. I get the effect the artist went for but even so, some areas would still look different from another. I.e axe head to the fur.

First entry was ok. Almost doesn't seem finished.

Gotta agree with sonofkritinos. Entry #1 looks unfinished and rushed. Entry #2 is visually striking with that OSL. The monochrome is nice and an awesome way to paint, but some parts would look better with a lighter hue of the brown but overall it is a stunning piece.

Went with #2 as well. The OSL is brilliant and took the show. There are some parts of the model that are lost in the monochromatic scheme, but kudos to the painter as that his very difficult to do at all.

I did vote for the second one becaus the effect is really cool but that is all that makes it cool, I do beleive that it needs more colour. but props to the first entry

Voted for 2. Reason being the top one is far from finished and even in a finished state it would of been out done by that osl. I'd of liked a bit more colour on 2 but on the right scenic base that would of worked a treat.
